    Every time I visit Hi-Time Wine Cellar nowadays, I buy myself a rum--have I written this already, the last time I wrote about a rum from the Costa Mesa playground of the boozehounds? Maybe.

  9. Battle of the South County Sandwiches: Board and Brew vs. The TroughRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jan 9 | OC Weekly

    There was an episode of Chopped that featured sandwiches, and it brought up a lot of questions: What actually a sandwich? And do simplicity and traditional ingredients reign over complicated, out-of-the-box combinations? While searching for a sandwich for lunch one day in South County, I pondered these questions and one more: How much am I really willing to pay for a sandwich? I didn't have too many options. I work in Rancho Santa Margarita, have a 1-hour lunch break and don't really want to stop by a grocery store deli or Panera.

  12. The Best Concerts in OC This WeekendRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jan 2 | OC Weekly

    J Boog and Anuhea The Observatory With his sleeve tattoos, backward baseball cap and penchant for oversized T-shirts, J Boog more resembles a member of Action Bronson's crew than a rising star of reggae. There's a strange kind of disconnect when watching his videos, too: sans dreadlocks and a rasta knit hat, you can't believe this huge, tough-looking guy is singing, sweetly and smoothly, over R&B-infused reggae grooves.

    Dec 17, 2014 | OC Weekly

    Pizza gets top billing at Gogo's Pizza and Kabab, which is a little weird to me because their pizza is just so-so. No, if you ever find yourself at that weird little take-out counter in Costa Mesa, you want to be ordering from the "kabob" [Gogo can't decide on their preferred spelling] half of the menu.

    Dec 10, 2014 | OC Weekly

    As I was sifting through my notes and photos to develop this list, I kept having one particular thought: damn, was I a lush. How do I pick five drinks from a cast of literally thousands? Many worthy candidates were skipped here--which just goes to show that drinking culture in OC is finally starting to move beyond vodka "martinis" and huge fishbowls of Julian "Pappy" Van Winkle was, before he was a bourbon magnate, a traveling salesman for the W.L. Weller distillery.
